Rear End Collision (2)
If your car was hit from behind, the accident is normally the other driver’s fault, regardless of the reason you stopped. In some situations, when a third car hits the car behind you and pushes it into the rear of your car, it is the driver of the third car who is at fault and may be liable for the crash.
I was in a rear-end accident and the other driver was clearly at fault. Do I still need an attorney?
Rear-end accidents may often seem straightforward but in reality are not. In many rear- end crashes, insurance companies use a wide range of tactics to reduce or deny claims. They may argue that because the collision happened at low speed, injuries aren’t due to the accident. An aggressive attorney will fight for your best interests.
